These distinctive small juglets belong to the "Tell el-Yahudiyeh Ware", named after the Egyptian site where they were first discovered, although this type of ware was produced elsewhere. The juglets are of a dark color, burnished black or dark brown, and decorated with fine impressed dots which were filled with white lime. Generally, juglets of this type are small with pointed bases, thus requiring support. The type also includes some animal-shaped vessels. Middle Bronze Age, 1800-1650 BCE. From Jabal al-Jawfa in Amman, Jordan. (The Jordan Museum, Amman, Jordan).
